In summer of 2017, Eric Sluss and Jimmy Padgett came together to purchase the commercial division of the company. Under new ownership and with a new vision for the future, Eric & Jimmy look to build on the foundation already in place through long-standing clients and loyal and talented employees with the launch of Sluss+Padgett.

Promoting a new take on mechanical and plumbing construction management and commercial service in Atlanta, the launch of these new offerings will be supported with the unveiling of a new visual identity and logo. Introducing a brand promise of "See the Difference", Sluss+Padgett brings unparalleled value to our commercial projects and a top-down commitment to put our customer’s needs ahead of our own.

As the new Company looks to fulfill a need in the marketplace, they also have plans to continue to grow. Currently at 80 employees, leadership will continue to recruit new talent and broaden their capabilities in an effort to better serve their customers.

To date they have collaborated on many new high-profile projects in the Atlanta area such as the Ritz-Carlton renovation/addition in Buckhead, the Hanover Midtown Building (28-story high-rise), the 288-room AC Marriott in Midtown, Clermont Hotel, and Denmark High School.
